Waiting Game

Life isn't always perfect.
Sometimes it rains on the best of parades. I've got a few years under my belt, and I've come to realize a couple of truisms. You've got to let life come to you. Now, on first reflection you're probably saying we don't really have a choice in the  matter. Life will do what life will do. I say seek out what you want. Prepare with the best of them. If you are depending on luck to assist you, you'll be waiting a long time. Being relegated to a holding pattern can be a beneficial ingredient in any choice looming on the horizon. One day happiness, the next tears. Patience is good though sometimes hard to locate in our world today. Don't plan for perfection. It ain't gonna occur that way. Let it try to find you.
It will.
These clouds will lift.
The sun will break through.
Just maybe not on your terms.
Today, looking up...
I'd bring the umbrella, if I were you.

  2. I agree you shouldn't plan on perfection because you have a mighty good chance of being disappointed if you do. But when perfection happens - WOW!

  5. Good advice, one has to learn the balance between patience and putting things off so much that it can't happen. Also, planning on being lucky is not much of a plan.

    Joe's Boathouse? Peak's Island? Not familiar with this place...

  10. We all need a rainy day occasionally to rejuvenate both ourselves and the earth.

  12. Yep. I agree. Patience and holding patterns can be trying but I've found that both have paid off for me in the long run.
